1. You Without End (7:36)
in a dark tunnel
and new dawn approaching
with a sphere of light ever glowing
let it go as it grows on forever
and we breathe it in

and then the world will grow
and then the world will know of you, of all things love, of all things true
2. Honeycomb (11:04)
shadows extend east
and Cortazar stares at women shuffling by who blot their lips from violent men
and say "god bless you"
I sulk with pause and
loving mariachi soars against the red and yellow tents of strangers
gifting geese the ends of bread.
8, 12, 13 hours and the people keep fighting for sleep, for rest...

i'm reluctant to stay sad
life beyond is a field a flowers
my love is a nervous child lapping from the glowing lagoon of their presence
my love is a bulging, blue-faced fool hung from the throat by sunflower stems
3. Canary Yellow (12:17)
Staring out onto the earthly pottery of existence,
Climbing light vines to heaven
Clay ribbons descend,
Swirl downward against metallic swell
Go sail charmer, altruist
Who immersed in thickets,
Hugged in cloth,
Evolves into charcoal
Is worshipped by the drifting macaw,
The lady finch
They swoop and croon through the air,
Dip their feathers in the death paste of ash water

I have wondered about the language of flowers
And you, elaborate mosaic, greeting me
Gentle, the swamp takes my ankles
On and on we choke on an everlasting
Handsome night
My lover’s blood rushes right through me
Wild, fantastic
4. Near (5:28)
Thought I saw you there
Wishing you were near
Can I rest for a while?
5. Glint (10:57)
listening to muffled footsteps of those brushing, reaching grasses
seeing the last letters of my name, faded and shy...

imagine us clasping hands in holiday.
imagining you growing older,
somehow more beautiful,
surrounded by your children and your children's children.
the midnight blue of your calmness like evening chamomile, peppermint
eyes as morning rosewater.
i'm shrinking into your gown, tearing the pink linen of your belly, burying into your abdomen, and sewing the seam of your skin.
6. Night People (4:07)
biblical sky speckled with flame, do you hold your mother's eyes from wetting the earth?
from weeping for those who reward fame to absolutes of war?
or for heroic myths provided for children married into ferocity?
they instead witness themselves

and the black sand of your body slipped through...

I found myself at your side

I spied along the concrete canvas, a woman-her eyes brimming with vacancy
and bear hugging barbiturates,
her head rolled from faint shoulders and skipped three times
each thud sprouting a fountain of splashing gold
7. Worthless Animal (10:07)
with all life profane, the ladles cradling streams of buttermilk current
stretch out,
and alabaster lips unseal
so I may recall the soft timbre of whisper in its stillness

when a fawn stumbles into the road,
honeydew high and deep in afterglow,
mind swarming on purple sand verbena,
I forgive its delusion,
caress its world view super bloom,
shelter canary yellow eyes,
then search to pin the legs of the stalking dog that lends its teeth to sticky, sad bedlam.
war cries quake through lurching light.
I bury a blade between its ribs
bear hug the soft canine frame,
then smear ash on its brow.
all who have forgotten remember now.
